Last month, we reported that rapper Fabolous likely wouldn’t serve jail time in his domestic violence case against his longtime girlfriend and mother of his children, Emily Bustamante. He struck a plea deal that would allow him to avoid jail time.
As we reported, the deal would allow Fabolous, whose real name is John Jackson, would be sentenced to a pre-trial intervention program that would consist of a series of domestic violence prevention workshops that could last from 6 months to a year.
According to TMZ, Fabolous’ lawyer have ironed out the details of the deal. After completion of the program, if Fabolous is able to complete the program and avoid future violent incidents for a year, the charges will be dismissed and removed from his record.
Fabolous’ lawyer, Brian Neary, told TMZ that Fabolous must provide the court with an update once a month. But he won’t have to go to therapy or take part in anger management courses.
As we reported earlier, Fabulous was facing up to 20 years in jail for 1 count of domestic violence with significant bodily injury, 2 counts of threatening to kill and 1 count of possession of a weapon. Last March, Fabolous was caught brandishing a pair of scissors as he threatened to kill Emily, her father and brother. This was days after Emily B. had to have her teeth surgically replaced after Fabolous allegedly knocked them out.
Throughout the whole ordeal, Fabolous and Emily have remained together. Bustamante and her daughter have appeared in court in support of Fabolous during this domestic violence case.
